      If you go to the home page, there is a subscription link to my newsletter on the right hand side. The newsletter only comes out irregularly, but I am hoping to get it out monthly starting in the near future.

    but I thought I’d post to let you know. The layout look great though!
    Hope you get the problem fixed soon. Many thanks
